Welcome Shark Tank and Fort Magic Fans! We LOVE Fort Magic and have been having so much fun! On Monday, April 21, 2014, we’ll have another one to giveaway! In the meantime, see how we like it so much below and subscribe to our newsletter so you don’t miss the giveaway.
Nothing has compared to the Fort Magic kit we recently received from our sponsor. I am so excited to share this ultimate fort building toy with you!
What kid doesn’t absolutely love to build forts? We have found the ultimate way to build a fort!
We dug into it this awesome fort building kit right away and started building.
It comes with a handy book of ideas that lays out all the pieces needed.
Which makes it much easier to sort through all the 382 pieces there are!
Henry is a great fort builder! He’s right at the age they recommend using Fort Magic, 5.5 years old.
George could do it too, but putting the pieces together tight, with a twist, is kind of tricky for him (kind of like putting Legos together tightly, it takes that little bit of oomph that younger kids don’t quite have the strength in their hands yet).
Henry and George first chose the mansion to build from the instructions book.
This was so great for Henry to look at the picture and build it.
Then it was time for a submarine.
After the boys built the fort, I covered the fort with fabric and sheets (the Fort Magic kit does not include the fabric covers).
Fort Magic has some cool tricks and tips for covering your forts that I found very helpful.
If you want, they even have patterns for each of the fort ideas so you can get a real snug fit.
But we just used old sheets we had that are set aside for painting drop cloths. (Don’t laugh at my sheets!)
And then it was just time to make whatever we wanted! We got creative!
There’s so many ideas that I can’t wait to keep exploring it with them.
A few Fort Magic tips to build a fort to its fullest potential:
- Push the pipes and connectors together and give it a twist, they’ll stay put then.
- Start with a simple, square fort to cover to get the hang of first (I found covering the fort the hardest).
